Welcome to the website for Gallaudet's undergraduate General Education redesign. 

A New Semester Brings a New Format for the Redesign Process

As we seek to engage our entire community in the redesgin of General Education at Gallaudet, we've also set up a working committee to accelarate our development and implmementation.

The General Education Council is an ad hoc (or temporary) committee of undergaduate faculty and staff people from key units working to move us forward.  We're working to incorporate student input and representation as well.  

Meetings of this Council are open to the entire community though! If you're curious about what's being done, join us! 

We'll be meeting on the following Wednesdays from 12-1:50:

Feb. 19 - in the Library B111 - understanding the importance of First Year Experiences and Seminars and generating ideas for a new course.
Feb. 26 in JSAC 1010 - Looking at the "big picture" of general education pathways, the first year and beyond
Mar 11 in JSAC 1010 - What institutional structures, supports, and resources are needed to make General Education successful and strong?
Mar. 25  in JSAC 1010 -Building out First Year Experience class plans and identifyng teachers and mechanisms for equipping them.
April 15 in JSAC 1010 - First Year Experience curriculum and resourcs for teaching.  Do we want to develop common readings? How to develop bilingual resources for teaching this course.
